Poesy plus Polemics

134thomyheartistorn_blog Painting by KM Schmidt

the irrational heart
cannot think so it dreams
cannot speak so it yearns
cannot laugh so it loves
cannot cry so it aches

emotions in equipoise
beating in balance
a clockwork arrangement
each feeling expressed
in its apposite time

the irrational heart
makes endogenous choices
its reflex to stimulus
mappings laid down in
the mists of the womb

it secretly operates
independent of intellect
organic magic and mystery
giving man means to
most fully experience life


“The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.” – Blaise Pascal
